Didn't the term "22 Skidoo" (or 23 Skidoo) originate there in the early part of the last century? The building is on 22nd or 23rd street and the odd shape of the building would make ladies skirts go up on a windy day.

Meow! I miss this place. Even though I had to stay inside all the time. I'm an international cat with a passport. Almost like a traveling gnome - but more handsome!x
